Damage minor due to flooding

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Flood damage from the rains in October seem to be minimal, according to the Oregon County Commissioners' Office.

Commissioner John Wrenfrow said there was some flood damage around some of the bigger drainages in the county. However, the county road department was able to make all of the roads passable about two or three days after the major flooding Oct. 29-30.

Wrenfrow said the county won't be seeking federal or state aide for any of the damage because none of it required major work to fix. "We've already got most of it patched up," Wrenfrow said.

"We didn't get as much (rain) as we did last year," he said referring to last spring's flood.
